Enormous Outpouring at Ribbon Cutting Ceremony!

Dear All,
Thanks to everyone’s hard work – especially Joy Rogalla and Annette who organized the entire National Trails Day Event – we had a smash hit!  Jim Reiland lost count at over 100 people at the actual ribbon cutting ceremony.

At least another 40-50 people showed up to hike after that and we had 25-40 people hiking at the other trailheads – some who hadn’t even known about the event.

So thank you one and all for all your help on everything — from trail work to baking to posting flyers and more.  BLM was quite blown away by the enormous outpouring of support – WAY TO GO SUTA.

We will be announcing a series of hikes on the Jack-Ash trail in the next couple of weeks so we hope you can come out and check out this next stage of our trail.  More to come.  In the meantime I hope you can go out and enjoy all of your hard work on the Sterling Mine Ditch trail.  It looks fabulous.

Thanks all.

Hope Robertson
